Debunking NOM’s talking points re: same-sex marriage. (It’s about freedom, people! Don’t you understand? Freedom!)

A trans woman discusses her legal gay marriage. (She transitioned after marrying a woman while legally male.) The best line, describing the practical effects of our country’s patchwork gender-and-sexuality laws on an actual person:
